cue the lightning bolts

the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

Fuckface Joe Lieberman thrilled to throw some gasoline on Iran civil unrest

As Iranians continue to protest the handling of their country's June 12 presidential election, reaction to the vote continues to pour in from around the world. U.S. Senator Joseph Lieberman (Independent, Connecticut) tells RFE/RL correspondent Heather Maher in Washington that Iranians shouldn't back down in their demonstrations. Eventually, he says, they will be rewarded with freedom.

RFE/RL: What is your personal reaction to the events in Iran? Have you been surprised by the scale and energy of the protests?

Senator Joseph Lieberman: I have been both surprised and encouraged by the scope of the protests. It's really been thrilling to me, and, I would say, thrilling to people throughout America and throughout the world because we understand how much courage it takes to stand in the face of a very repressive regime, which has strength on its side.
